Regular class attendance is a requisite if students are to succeed in their classes. All students are expected to attend class meetings regularly and promptly. There is a policy of no cuts at Jones County Junior College. Since there are times when students must be absent from class, they should contact instructors prior to the absence if at all possible. Students are responsible for all work missed regardless of the cause of the absence. On the 7th absence (3-day-a-week-classes) or the 5th absence (2-day-a- week-classes) the student will be dropped from the course, and a grade of W will be recorded. (For evening classes, career, and technical classes, please refer to the Student Handbook) paid back. On the other hand, loans require future repayment.

4 Tips for College Parents 1. Teach them how; Don t do it for them Students must learn how to function on their own, which won t happen as long as they know the parent will get it done for them. Offer guidance and support while allowing the student to become independent and self-reliant. 2. Refer The Office of Student Affairs is available as a resource to students. Encourage your student to see a Dean if they are experiencing any problem on campus. 3. Discuss Academic Goals and Expectations Ahead of Time Ask them what they hope to accomplish academically during their first year. It is important for them to take ownership of their education, yet it s okay for you to have clear expectations such as regular class attendance and best efforts in the classroom. 4. Plan Your Communication Do you want a planned time to talk or do you want to be more spontaneous? A cell phone can be a wonderful way to keep in touch, or it can be, as one student described, an electronic leash. Resist the helicopter syndrome. Allow your child room to breathe. and instant messaging are wonderful ways to keep in touch. Just don t count on a reply to every message. 5. Discuss Financial Goals and Expectations Develop a tentative budget and be clear about who will pay for what. For example, some parents pay for books and supplies, while their child is responsible for incidental expenses such as snacks, movies, and CDs. Other students are responsible for earning a percentage of their tuition. Teach your child about responsible use of credit and debit cards. 6. Expect Conflicting Emotions For you and the student - The excitement and joy about opportunities awaiting your child are mixed with waves of nostalgia and a sense of loss. Your child, like you, is being pulled between past, present and future... one day exclaiming leave me alone; I m 18 years old and the next complaining you re never around when I need you. Your child s ups and downs are a sign of the ambivalence of this transitional time. 7. Encourage Involvement This isn t high school anymore; no need to join every club under the sun to try to impress somebody. Help your student figure out what they re passionate about, and then pursue it. JONES has more than 30 clubs and organizations. Getting involved is a great way to meet people with similar interests, and there are many life lessons to be learned outside of the classroom. 8. Discuss Behavior Expectations For some teenagers, the unbridled freedom that college life affords can lead to unwise choices that can have damaging and far-reaching consequences. Talk to your student about alcohol and drug values, sexual behavior, and other core values. Make sure your student reads and understands the Code of Conduct at JONES. 9. Encourage Persistence College is tough academically, financially, and socially. Although parents remember back to the best years of their lives, the young adult years can involve some hard times, many during the student s first year in college. JONES offers counseling services through the Student Success Center to help students through some of these times and to help students continue pursuing their academic and career goals. Remind your student that tough times don t last, but tough people do. 4

Violators of these standards of conduct will be subject to disciplinary action. College Code of Conduct The College Code of Conduct may be found in the Student Handbook. *It is the responsibility of the student to read and understand this code. The broad purpose underlying student discipline is to order college living in such a way that the interests of the College community as a whole and of the individual members are best served.
